Re: Wings of Valor 2.0.4 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

I would be interested in taking a look at your Wesmere replay if you don't mind posting it. There's a few ways to play this scenario so I am curious to see how each of us approaches it and whether the game play and instructions were clear enough. An interesting Blue/Orange morality for Drakes would ...

Re: Wings of Valor 2.0.4 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

Good catch, that is definitely a bug in our balancing. The intent was that it be necessary to draw out the human forces to meet you on the field in the south, before calling in the reinforcements to flank and assassinate their leader and take the largely undefended city. (Whereas calling reinforceme...

Re: How is the in-game editor used?

Tbh the main reason why I don't use the editor for anything else but map creation is because I never knew that you could. It is called "map editor" so I thought it would only be an editor for maps. It had some grey buttons called "Areas" and "Side" but I didn't give th...

Re: The Mists of Time: Reimagining Irdya as Earth's Mythical Past

https://www.reddit.com/r/lotr/comments/av9bv0/ice_age_europes_doggerland_looks_like_it_could_be/ ... looks like the Kingdom of Wesnoth sank to become the English Channel in our time period. That seems to suggest yet another possibility: Irdya is actually our Earth's future. ^_^ That would better exp...

Re: Wings of Valor 2.0.3 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

nemaara and doofus-01 (mostly gameplay) have done considerable work on multiple campaigns by now (you might want to play new DiD, Liberty, and SoF at some point, though the latter only received gameplay updates AFAIK). I had meant to get to playing them but work on WoV took up the time. The gamepla...

Re: Wings of Valor 2.0.3 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

This is a highly inappropriate misapprehension of my criticisms, conflating them with the whole debacle about the female drakes, which also wasn't about "checkbox diversity", mistakes in the handling of said removal and possibly underlying "political" arguments notwithstanding :...

Re: Wings of Valor 2.0.3 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

Spoiler'ed the entire post since pretty everything I'm responding to is also in spoiler tags. I will do the same then: Why does everyone insist on associating nagas and saurians? There's no real reason for the two to get along, and they don't even live in the same environments. They have a working ...

Re: Who did the artwork for the old wesnoth characters?

They never matched the style of any other portraits, the characters looked around 12 or 13... You know, I've been having this nagging feeling that Kitty may have shot past the mark a bit when trying to make them look older. Indeed. Konrad and Li'sar sound younger than their twenties but look older ...

Re: Wings of Valor 2.0.3 (Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

NR works better here, because the campaign is more coherent in tone, more light-hearted in its storytelling, while you - in most cases - try to tell a serious (even dark) story, try to establish more complex characters (on the drakes side). This might be where we have misunderstood each other. It i...

Re: Wings of Valor 2.0.2(Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

Some of this was written before the last update but I don't want to edit it all again (or I will never get this posted), so just ignore things that are already concluded. Alrighty. One further thing I noticed: is it intentional that the Dragon Claws damage goes 2/3/4? Doesn't this mean the bonus is...

Re: Wings of Valor 2.0.2(Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

The point is that you have a very detailed background story and motivations for your characters, but then go for general brevity in your story telling. I have not done precise metrics on WoV, but from my rough estimates during the early drafts, the word count to playable scenario ratio was on the u...

Re: Wings of Valor 2.0.2(Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

For me gameplay was mostly fine, but I don't play for the same reasons as others at least in my opinion. I play to exploit and destroy enemies in easy manner, thus I mostly focus on overall strategy than battlefield tactics (I like that too but only on small scale big scale takes too much time for ...

Re: Wings of Valor 2.0.2(Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

Whiskeyjack, thanks for the detailed bug reporting and review. One reoccurring thing I noticed was your desire for more back story type information and explanations. Quite a lot of this exists (and if I recall correctly, some of it was even in early drafts) but had to be cut for length. I hope we ch...

Re: Wings of Valor 2.0.2(Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

FTR, are the elves supposed to hate gates this much? Well according to canon, steel has a powerful negative reaction with the elves' fae essence and... well... no, they should not; it is a bug. :) Unfortunately, I ran out of time to experiment with specifically controlling the AI aggression towards...

Re: Wings of Valor 2.0.2(Drake Campaign for BfW 1.14)

Will attempt to deal with the ai village grabbing issue at some point. It's the wesnoth ai in general, better specific settings in S02 might solve it. S2 I'm not sure if this is specifically a problem with the allied AI in S2, or if this is something about the wesnoth AI in general, but my ally is ...
